some history......
The brand name Kenmore means Sears and Roebuck to most American consumers. But before Sears started using the Kenmore label, it used other brand names, including Minnesota Sewing Machine - the designation found on the item in today's question.

The line was made for Sears by the Davis Sewing Machine Company of Watertown, N.Y., which later moved to Dayton, Ohio. Few people realize that the sewing machine has been around for a long time, and Davis started manufacturing these machines during the 1860s.

By the late 19th century, the company reportedly was turning out hundreds of thousands of these helpful household devices every year. Davis probably started making machines for Richard Sears some time in the 1890s, and Sears chose the brand name Minnesota because it was the name of his home state.
